A good day despite the rain!


Two superb world-class exhibitions in one day!

The Goya exhibition to celebrate ten years of existence of Caixa Forum and the exhibition centre in Barcelona.  Brilliant paintings that I didn’t expect to see there.  Yes, there were the usual etchings but The Clothed Maja portraits and other paintings that must have left serious gaps in many collections.  Cartoons for the tapestries; “Black” paintings.  It was a joy to wander round.

The Delacroix was equally unexpected with major canvasses on show.

The only downside was the price of the catalogue for each exhibition, which I considered exorbitant.

Lunch was with Suzanne and pica-pica and delicious.
